How families are supported

The hub home provides support to the other families, through:

  • regular social activities (usually at least once a month)
  • planned and emergency sleepovers (the hub home must have at least two beds specifically for the use of children and young people in their group)
  • short breaks 
  • mentoring and support
  • help to access support that is available in the wider community
  • joint planning and training

The hub home also provides a neutral space for:

  • shared decision-making meetings
  • social worker visits
  • sibling and birth family visits
